Packers K Mason Crosby (left calf, back, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 8. Crosby may not be able to kick this week so owners should look elsewhere.
GB K Mason Crosby - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 2 vs. Lions
Week 1 saw the Green Bay Packers get absolutely torched on both sides of the ball, leading to a paltry three-point game for kicker Mason Crosby. The veteran bootsman nailed his lone attempt last week, but just had no opportunities to add more with the game fully out of reach by the third quarter.
Week 2 should provide much better chances for Crosby in fantasy football, as three of our boxes get ticked by this matchup: the Packers are at home on Monday night, they are favored by 11.5 points, and have an implied team total of 30 points over the hapless Detroit Lions. The Lions gave up 14.0 fantasy points to a kicker last week, so it's not unrealistic to hope for a similar outcome for Crosby if the Pack don't get too aggressive about going for it on fourth down. Our models project him for 3.3 extra points and 1.6 field goals in Week 2 as fantasy's K13 – on the cusp of startable, but worth a longer look than you'd think due to context.
